Robinair 16910



The Robinair 16910 Identifier provides a fast, easy and accurate means to determine refrigerant purity in refrigerant storage cylinders or directly in vehicle air conditioning systems.  It also determines the need and controls the purging of ambient air-based NCG from refrigerant storage vessels or vehicle air conditioning systems.

The instrument utilizes non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) technology to determine the weight concentrations of refrigerant types R-12, R-134a, R-22, hydrocarbons and air. Refrigerant purity is automatically determined for refrigerants R-12 and R-134a by the instrument to eliminate human error. Pure refrigerant is defined as a refrigerant mixture that contains 98% by weight, or greater, of either R-12 or R-134a.

The instrument provides the option to purge sample refrigerant sources of air contamination down to levels set by the user. Air purging is completely automatic and requires no intervention by the user other than telling the instrument to begin the purging process.

The instrument is supplied complete with R-12 and R-134a sample hoses, an R-134a adapter fitting to permit sampling of ACME ported cylinders, a purge vent hose, a connected power cord and all required plumbing housed within a rugged portable case.

  • Displays the actual percent of R-12, R-134a, R-22, and air in the system or tank
  • Air Purge
  • Visual and audible hydrocarbon alarm
  • On-board printer port
  • Sample Parameters: Vapor only, oil free, 300 psig (2MPa max)
  • Detected Compounds: R-12, R-134a, R-22, hydrocarbons, air
  • Sensor Technology: Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR)
  • Refrigerant Sample Size: 0.3 ounces (8.5 grams) per sample
  • Refrigerant Loss During Purge Operation: Typically 0.4 ounces (11 grams) per minute of purge time. Refrigerant loss is dependent upon many factors; such as refrigerant source size, refrigerant source head space, initial refrigerant contamination, and final purge limit setting.
  • Power: 110/220V, 50/60Hz, 0.2 amps max
  • Operational Temperature: 39°F - 122°F (4°C - 50°C)
  • Dimensions: 20" x 12.4" x 8"

If the refrigerant being tested is identified as contaminated, any visual percentages displayed of CFC-12 (R-12) or HFC-134a (R-134a) outside the design certified value is informational and may not be accurate.
